Champions quotes from Challenge Bahrain


“Honestly I’ve done triathlon for 20 years and I’ve seen a lot of places and done a lot of races but this is one of a kind. I never thought this would be possible, how we are treated, the hospitality, the people. It’s incredible. This is far above any race I’ve done before – whether it’s world championships or any other race. Thank you so much to Sheikh Nasser, what the Bahrainis have done today is just amazing.”

Michael Raelert


“I’m speechless because as many know I didn’t have the race I wanted at the World Champs so I wanted to make Challenge Bahrain my world championship and the field was actually better.”
